12Volt Interior lights out

On a recent trip, my bedroom wardrobe light, and the 2 directional lights above the bed quit working (These are on the slide-out). I'm thinking fuse (they seem to be wired off of each other) It's hard to trace the wiring, because it's all concealed. Any idea where the fuses are for the interior 12Volt lighting?

Appreciate any input...

TX

I can think of two possibilities. The first is in the main fuse/breaker box that is usually located in the bedroom near the floor. Normally you just remove the cover and the breakers (for 120vac) and some fuses for 12VDC are exposed for changeout. The other location is normally under the stairwell, located on the frame rail is a power control box. You will have to remove the cover thereby exposing additional fuses. Hopefully, the one you need to find is in one of these locations.

Mike,

TX.....I've checked the + coming into all the fuses on the floor panel, and I've got + going thru all the fuses. I'm also thinking under the stairs because all the 12V lights run off the coach battery. Unfortunately, these things don't come with detailed fuse distribution drawings. TX again for your reply

If check your GFI outlet in the bathroom and reset it. Stranger things have been wired by FR.

The 110v GFCI breaker would have nothing to do with the 12v lights.

12 volt lights

Since your unit is a 2004, I would trace where the wiring goes into the slide. Every time the slide goes in and out, it puts flexes in the wiring. I did a lot of wiring repairs at door jams on cars.

Well, it's fixed. I figured why all 3 lights in the slideout? So, as there is not any visible wiring outside the slide, I said...maybe under the bed. Broken wire. Actually, it came out of the plastic crimp. Don't know why after 12 years, but...
They give you absolutely no "slack" in this wiring, so I added a foot of 12 guage wire, and life is good. TX to everyone.
